Volunteers are a vital part of every therapeutic riding program! Without volunteers our lessons cannot take place! Volunteers will be trained under the direct guidance of a PATH-certified instructor. Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.
Volunteers can learn about disabilities, develop or hone horse handling skills, and learn about the power of the human-animal bond. This will also be a great opportunity to increase physical fitness and to enjoy the social benefits of volunteering! For many riders, their time at B.R.E.A.THE. will be the most significant part of their week. By volunteering with us, you will be helping to ensure that our riders will continue to benefit from the life-enriching power and potential of therapeutic riding.
We will need side-walkers and horse leaders for lessons, and class volunteers to assist the instructor. In addition, volunteer talent will be needed for stable and grounds maintenance, equine grooming and care, classroom training, horse adoption evaluation, facilities development, fundraising, public awareness (aka advertising!), grant writing, general office, photography and videography, and event planning.
Volunteers working around the horses will be required to attend a volunteer orientation at a scheduled day and time. Lesson volunteers will be required to sign up for a minimum of one shift per week, per session. Sessions will run for 6 or more weeks depending on the season.
Volunteer hours may count for school, court or extra-curricular requirements. Check with your school or administrator to verify before scheduling yourself to volunteer.
If you are passionate about serving the needs of those with disabilities and have a passion for horses, we encourage you to contact us.
